On January 7, we continued the Garrison Institute Forum on Pathways to Planetary Health (PPH) with a conversation between Ibrahim Salih Abdul-Matin, author and co-founder of Green Squash Consulting, and Jonathan F.P. Rose, co-founder of the Garrison Institute. This far-reaching, timely conversation is full of insights into the work of healing our planet and ourselves, and we invite you to revisit this energizing dialogue below.
This interactive online event was part of a continuing series in the Garrison Institute’s Forum on Pathways to Planetary Health (PPH). Building on the Garrison Institute’s earlier Climate, Mind and Behavior (CMB) program, Pathways to Planetary Health explores the moral, ethical, and human behavioral dimensions of the search for regenerative solutions, including Half-Earth, Ecological Civilization, Regenerative Economics, and Societal Altruism.
